The food is of a consistently high standard. There is a great ambiance and the service is good. We have always enjoyed our visits to The Blou Nartjie.

To be frank, the hinterland of South Africa - particularly in the Northern Cape - is fast resembling a deserted dust-bowl. Occasionally one stumbles upon a genuinely pleasant surprise like The Blue Nartjie. Very friendly service and delicious spare ribs were the fare. Mrs had a delicious lamb pie and both were accompanied by very palatable Orange River Cellars wine. This would appear to be the place to eat in Calvinia as the tables filled up quite quickly and for good reason.

This was the closest restaurant to the hotel I was staying at. The B&B owners recommended this place, and recommended the lamb. The meal was good, but the service was very slow. I had to remind the waiter several times about my meal. Management needs to have a talk with the young wait staff about taking care of their guests.

During a recent bike trip through the "karoo" we enjoyed both breakfast and dinner at this delightful restaurant in Calvinia.

Herman is an exceptional host, and his staff are professional and friendly in their overall conduct.

This is the best place to eat in Calvinia, without a shadow of a doubt!
